Widely considered one of the world’s finest string quartets, the Takács Quartet celebrates Schubert in a two-concert residency at Lincoln Center during the 2018/19 season. For this first appearance, they are joined by cellist David Requiro to explore the symphonic textures, timbres, and colors of the composer’s revelatory String Quintet in C major.


This performance is also part of the White Light Festival.
